I didn't notice anything about security in the pdf ?
WBEM is more secure way. SNMP is a cleartext communication.

Re: SNMP vs WBEM

Hi Karlo,

just an example - the online diagnostics for hp-ux moved from proprietary+snmp to wbem in system fault management (SFM) and now works with HP SIM.

White papers and other info is here

http://docs.hp.com/en/diag.html

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Hi Karlo,

We are using SNMP. WBEM doesn not give me all of the information I need in SIMS.

SNMP for servers
WBEM for storage and SAN (or SMI-S through WBEM)
